Thomas' Story (Clip)


Topics youth, education, arts


Thomas Vigil has struggled with academics all of his life. With a strong friendship network, he loves coming to school but has difficulty with traditional learning which requires reading, writing, and sitting still in a desk. However, he gained confidence in his ability to succeed in school when he became involved in arts programming and television production at his high school. Thomas, who is highly creative, has found a new interest in school and is eager to learn. While he still struggles in English, his teacher says that he seems much happier and has brought his enthusiasm for developing TV programs into her class. Thomas is now planning for the future and may even go on to college or a technical school.
